' Tara Donovan - Animator: Telus Panda Production Notes

Telus Panda Production Notes


June 13, 2013
Here are a few of the doodles I did at Topix to better understand pandas. I gathered a ton of reference photos and footage before I started but Topix turned out to have the largest collection of reference material I've ever seen. I made quick photo collages as desktop wallpaper and drew all the time - on my breaks, while waiting for scenes to load, etc. I took extensive director notes because I don't trust my own memory and I wanted to do the best possible job of interpreting the director's ideas. I have otter notes too!
